Chien Chi Chang, born in Taiwan in 1961, is a photographer with the agency Magnum. ‘The Chain’, was published by Trolley Books in 2002 and documented inmates at Long Fa Tang (“Temple of the Dragon”) in Taiwan. It was part of the Venice Biennale in 2001, and he since was represented at the Taiwanese Pavilion again in 2009. This portrait of Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi was taken last year, the edition so far is open but only four are made, one for Gigi, one for Amnesty International Taiwan to help Burmese people, one for Chien Chi’s daughter and another one for The Lady when he meets her next year.
